Conservative Radio Icon Rush Limbaugh Admits Cancer Will Kill Him Sooner Rather Than Later


Conservative radio lion Rush Limbaugh started his show, Monday, with an extended update on his cancer and admitted he is “under a death sentence,” and that he is getting worse, not better.

At the start of his show, Limbaugh told fans that he has never wanted to make his show a daily discussion of his illness, but noted that things are not looking good.

Indeed, he said that for several months it seemed that his cancer had been stymied and was no longer growing. But that is no longer the case.

“From the moment you get the diagnosis, there’s a part of you every day, OK, that’s it, life’s over, you just don’t know when,” Limbaugh said Monday at the beginning of his daily radio program. “So, during the period of time after the diagnosis, you do what you can to prolong life, do what you can to prolong a happy life. You measure a happy life against whatever medication it takes.”

The radio talk giant then got a bit philosophical.

“It’s tough to realize that the days where I do not think I’m under a death sentence are over,” Limbaugh continued. “Now, we all are, is the point. We all know that we’re going to die at some point, but when you have a terminal disease diagnosis that has a time frame to it, then that puts a different psychological and even physical awareness to it.”

Limbaugh then noted that his cancer is once again on the march. Where it was once slowed to manageability, it is now growing again.

“We had stopped the growth. It had been reduced, and it had become manageable. But there’s always the reality and the knowledge that that can change and it can come back because it is cancer. It eventually outsmarts pretty much everything you throw at it,” he said.

Still, Limbaugh said he was fully aware that his disease was never going to be eliminated. His cancer was too far advanced when it was first discovered, so prolonging the inevitable was all they were ever going to be able to achieve.

That, Limbaugh said, causes him to feel blessed for every additional day he is afforded.

“We had stopped the growth. It had been reduced, and it had become manageable,” he said. “But there’s always the reality and the knowledge that that can change and it can come back because it is cancer. It eventually outsmarts pretty much everything you throw at it.”

“I thank God every morning when I wake up,” he said. I thank God that I did. I try to make it the best day I can no matter what. I don’t look too far ahead. I certainly don’t look too far back,” he added.
